Normal is overrated

I'm Writing Daily, now.

There are many reasons why I've decided to write a blog post daily. For one, two of my favorite writers - Austin Kleon and Seth Godin - write every day. They do not think about how "good" they're writing is. Or, whether it will become a New York Times bestseller. They write because they have an intuitive understanding that writing is a practice. It's a muscle that needs to be utilized daily to communicate what you want to say succinctly and with great mastery. So, I'm proclaiming the declaration to write a blog post daily. 

I am not providing a due date as to when I will stop because habits don't stop. I don't decide to stop brushing my teeth every day because I've been doing it for 20+ years. I don't decide to stop driving to work because I've done it every day from Monday to Friday for 8 years. 

I am deciding to write because it is developing a practice of clarity. Derek Sivers once said, "you should feel pain when you're unclear". I love the act of learning, but when learning isn't implemented, it sits there and takes storage without proper usage. So, I am deciding to write for the betterment of my communication skills.
